Cinque Terre is a beautiful area of the Italian Riviera which is comprised of five villages. The towns are connected by medieval style walkable paths. These villages are a favored destination for travelers to Italy where seafood is prevalent. Pesto, a condiment made of fresh basil, is the flagship of tradition in the region. At Cinque Terre, we make our pesto every day from the freshest and top quality ingredients. We always have on the menu, Muscoli (mussels), Polpo (octopus), Gamberi (shrimp) and a variety of seasonal seafood, artisan pizzas along with house-made pastas.

Not enough expletives. Food soooo good. As always
Amazing food and service, great prices- Servers were excellent
There was a long wait (but it was peak time on a Saturday evening. Staff was outstanding from front to back. The food was good. My husband loved the Eggplant ravioli. I ordered the surf n turf, and the 10 oz strip steak was delicious when I smothered it with the pesto that came with the oil-soaked focaccia. The 2 grilled shrimp were good. The fried lobster was a big disappointment to this New Englander who is used to a more flavorful meat with texture much firmer than one had.
Not for foodies or for quiet, romantic dates, but good for friends night out, with excellent live music inside, and an exciting vibe throughout!
The food was average. Drinks were good. Service was average.
Server and bus were most attentive and kind
Food was not special...entrees were dry
Food is so so . My salmon was over cooked, the pulpo and lasagna were not great. I always order pulpo whenever it is on the menu and this was slightly disappointing.
The positive was the Barolo bottle and our server was amazing.
It was perfect my b-day dinner
Service and food was perfect!
Especially octopus dish was so good.
The candle with dessert cake is touching point for me and my toddler boy :)
My boyfriend and I were visiting Seattle Valentine’s weekend and went to cinque terre for dinner. It was amazing! We both loved our food and the prosciutto buratta appetizer was wonderful. The wait staff was very nice, and the covid precautions in place made us feel very comfortable dining at this restaurant.
We celebrated Valentine’s Day and had the best time! We started with Lentil, Spinach and Cardamom soup which was beyond incredible! Then enjoyed a delicious dinner of Steelhead Trout and Rigatoni with Boar which were both the best dinners we’ve had in ages! Bravo to the chef! The service was terrific and the atmosphere just beautiful. Our temperature was checked upon arriving and we were given hand sanitizer, making us feel very comfortable with their Covid practices.
Great food and service team was so attentive! Appreciate the spacing out of guests, felt safe dining here during COVID pandemic
Food and drinks were great. Enjoyable atmosphere with excellent service.
Wonderful place to eat! Great staff and it felt very covid safe.
The service was quite attentive and we enjoyed nearly everything we had. The fresh local oysters were top notch and the wine selection was abundant. The only negative feedback we'd have was the margarita pizza. While we figured it would be a thin pizza, it was extremely droopy and the bottom was caked in flour. It felt like taking a teaspoon of flour with each bite.
Aside from that, the dining experience was perfect! We will be visiting again soon.
Friendly waiters. The food was amazing (drinks and rigatoni especially and free bread ). Nice place with intimate ambiance
Good food. Service was ok but could have been better. Would be willing to give them another go.
The service was excellent and the food was outstanding .
We ate outside on the first night it was open since COVID. The patio was great, there was plastic dividers and heaters. The food was delicious, definitely recommend the seafood soup and the fresh oysters!
Amazing SRW menu and friendly service. Nice ambient lighting
FANTASTIC SERVICE. Especially if your going out to celebrate a anniversary or birthday. We were visiting Seattle from California and had an awesome knowledgeable waiter named Crystal. The staff is very friendly and fast. I love their open kitchen setup. We celebrated our anniversary dinner on a Wednesday and enjoyed it all. Definitely WOULD COME AGAIN AND RECOMMEND. THANK YOU Crystal
Worse service ever
The experience was great. We arrived 5 mins early and the hostess mentioned they were running on time and that our table would be ready at 7pm. My partner requested to sit outside which she totally accommodated our request without hesitation. It was nice being outside with the heaters during these times of COVID.
Our waitress was really great, her energy was positive and delightful and made great conversation. It was nice that you guys offered bubbly water without a charge. We came for restaurant week but also ordered an extra appetizer that never came. It turned out to be ok because there was a lot of food from SRW. When I asked about the missing appetizer, she apologized and gave us a cannoli for dessert. For dessert, we ordered 2 panna cotta and 1 tiramisu but we got 2 tiramisu and 1 panna cotta and the cannoli. Besides those little mishaps, she was great! We would come back and see her again.
Regarding the food, the salmon was a bit over cooked and the brussel sprouts didn’t have much flavor. However, the braised short ribs were amazing, I cleaned up my plate clean! I also really enjoyed the pumpkin soup!
Very, very good food and service. The cocktails were just okay, but the food itself was very high quality. Recommend the calamaretti.
Impressed by the cautions taken to prevent Covid. Our server was personable and attentive and the food was wonderful!
Went here for my birthday dinner! Food was amazing
Always good service and the prosciutto and burrata appetizer is everything!
A huge thanks to our server Christina and this WONDERFUL establishment for making our anniversary a special and splendid experience.
We had the chefs choice antipasto, cesar salad, lasagna and homemade fettuccini with prawns. By the time the entrees got to our table I was ready to give this place 5 stars. Upon first bite, i was inspired to write a review detailing my experience here.
Hats off to the chef, owners and front/back of the house staff that all contribute to creating this amazing experience day in and day out. 10/10 for food, presentation, decor, quality and SERVICE!
We will 100% be back for more. Thank you!
The octopus was great as was the pesto pasta that we had with prawns. Great wine as well. Very lovely.
Wonderful birthday meal and such a beautiful restaurant. The service was attentive and friendly, and every precaution was taken so felt very safe. Covid and the current conditions in the Seattle/SLU core have definitely slammed this once always busy establishment. Support your local independent restaurants, people! They’re fighting an uphill battle.
Thank you for your review. I am glad you felt safe and enjoyed your meal. It is our upmost priority to make each guest feel comfortable with our current situation so they can relax and enjoy their time with friends and family. We appreciate your recognition in our safety protocols. It means a lot. Thank you, Michael Barnett General Manager
Nice restaurant with fine dining. We had round table away from the rest of the guests. They also have outdoor table, but not sure if they are heated.
Food was good. Will come back for sure.
Good social distancing. Good waitress. Music was a little loud, and didn't provide a romantic atmosphere.
Thank you for your review and kind words. We will keep in mind the volume of our music. Thank you so much for allowing us to be better by your feedback. Thank you, Michael Barnett General Manager
Food was great. Service was nice but ridiculously slow. Also, they are demanding to take your temperature at the door which is not required under the current orders and pretty offputting Giving they are not asking, they are demanding.They should consider asking in a different way so it is not a demand. I suspect most people would do so if asked. But demanding something that it’s not required put a very negative start on the visit.
I want to apologize for the demand of temp taking. It is not our policy to demand anything from our valued guests. I have talked to my host team and moving forward we will be more polite and ask. I hope that you will join us again so you can see that every comment our guests make are addressed immediately. It is our hope, with feedback that we constantly strive to be better and offer service that is impeccable. Thank you, Michael Barnett General Manager
Good service, good food.
Just enjoyed a spectacular meal for two. Had several small sharing plates to begin. Each one was beautifully presented & very tasty. Two delicious main courses & a wonderful dessert to finish. The restaurant has a full service bar also. We sat indoors but outside is a charming covered patio. The general manager Michael made us feel very welcome & the servers were very speedy & polite. We will definitely return here.
I had a great time here eating there food. They have had phenomenal service, nice waiters, and very good wine. I personally ordered the steak and potatoes and my girlfriend ordered the pasta. I will definitely return for a nice meal!! highly recommend.
Amazing food. Very caring staff. Excellent social distancing.
Perfect restaurant. Very good food, good Italian vine selection. Great customer service.
Great outside safe seating. Lots of distance between other tables. Excellent Menu. Caring service
